Posted this weekend to Franklin Graham’s Facebook page:
I’m saddened, disappointed—and yes, shocked—to see that University of Tennessee, Knoxville is promoting a “Sex Week” for its students. This Fox News story refers to it as “Sodom & Gomorrah.” It’s even worse than the name sounds when you read the events and classes on their own website. They’re actually pushing this filthy trash on young people whose parents are paying good money to send them there for a quality education. What could Chancellor Beverly Davenport be thinking?
There’s nothing healthy or educational about all of this. It’s just simply promoting sin. I think parents should take steps to see this stopped—or pull their students out. Alumni and the residents of Tennessee who fund the university should make it clear that this does not have any place at their state university.
I think pastors across this great state should speak out against it, and I hope Governor Bill Haslam will step in and make sure the group responsible is no longer allowed to do their damage at UT. Email your concerns to the university chancellor’s office at [email protected] Let me know what you think in the comments below.
The Fox story was written, of course, by canned ham spokesmodel Todd Starnes. (Tipped by JMG reader Scott)
